Straws stopped

First News - - Home News -

Pupils at Sun­ny­side Pri­mary School in Craigend have man­aged to get Glas­gow City Coun­cil to ban the use of plas­tic straws. The vic­tory comes af­ter the school ran a cam­paign that high­lighted plas­tic’s im­pact on ma­rine wildlife. The coun­cil won’t pro­vide straws with drinks any longer, but those who want one will get an eco-friendly ver­sion. The ban will come into place from the end of Fe­bru­ary.
